In Topic: 1958 Ford

This is my first post so I figured that it should be the first Model I ever built and I bought it brand new in 1959! I'll never forget when I opened the box and I have been a plastiholic every since! Of coarse it has been redone (more than once) since then. The first time of coarse it had every decal that came in the box on it! Luckily I didn't add all the Scoops, fender skirts and extra fins).attachicon.gif006.JPGattachicon.gif009.JPG

 

Great build and a familiar story. A friend of mine got a '58 Buick 3 in 1 and after he showed me what was in the box I thought my eyes would never go back in my head! Pretty soon I had a '59 Ford and then a '59 Lincoln and then ... well, here I am!

My new truck finally showed up. It's so nice to finally drive a brand new truck and not someone's old beater that was abused and smoked in. Even better it's a detroit powered freightliner and not another unreliable cummins powered volvo. Wasn't sure about the tighter gap between the fairings and trailer, but it's surviving Jersey so far. It's no Peterbilt, but then again I'd quit before I'd have to drive a largecar around the metro NYC area.

 

You win!!! :D

That's fantastic work! You have great scratch-building skills. I wish that model companies would make more kits of all kinds of construction, farm and utility vehicles. They're some of the most interesting subjects and I'll probably never have the nerve to jump into a major scratch-building project like this one. Great stuff!

Very cool idea! That looks great.


In Topic: Lindberg 1940 Ford Coupe Kustom

Very well done!  I've heard that the Lindberg kits can be hit or miss with fit and finish, but you nailed this build

 One of the reasons that Lindberg kits can be hit or miss is that a lot of their tooling came from an assortment of defunct companies. I understand that the Lindberg '40 Ford was originally tooled up by Palmer, If that's true, it has to be the best thing that Palmer ever did no matter how many issues it has!
